woolsey's voice and service will surely be missed. that is "viewpoint" for tonight. >> jennifer: i'm jennifer grandholm. tonight in "the war room," my presidential ambitions are sinking like a stone, and mitt romney has a bad hair day. wait a minute that doesn't sound right. >> i attempted to go back to that wonderful line about ronald reagan there you go again. >> clinton used that the other day in the democratic convention. >> jennifer: good god man now even your boys in congress are proving useless. >> let's have a big hand for the cute and curvaceous jennifer grandholm. >> jennifer: oh, right. ♪ >> jennifer: we're going to start with big news on the campaign front today. mitt romney who staked his entire campaign on the premise that he would do a better job on the economy than the president, is now trailing the president on the issue of the -- wait for it -- the economy. that's right. likely voters think the president would be best on the economy, 47-46. that's a narrow lead but it's the first time the president has lead on this pivotal issue on the campai
jeffrey toobin. it is tuesday >> jennifer: you're back inside "the war room." i'm jennifer granholm. so mitt romney's 47% remarks are certainly not the first or the last time that a presidential candidate has stepped in it. remember this infamous quote from 2004. democratic nominee senator then john kerry of massachusetts? >> i actually did vote for the $87 billion before i voted against it. >> jennifer: kerry was discussing, of course, his decision not to support a supplemental bill that would fund the u.s. troops. now republicans pounced on that statement calling kerry a flip-flopper. remember that ad about him on the windsurf. then a label like that, of course would argue helped him to lose to president george w. bush. but the point is that once the dye has been cast, an impression has solidified. once a story about a candidate takes hold, it is a really tough narrative to get it back. so how does a war room react when the negative impression, when the narrative starts to stick and when anything a candidate said

[ laughter ] >> jennifer: that's newt gingrich offering president obama some unsolicited advice. meanwhile the obama and romney campaigns are managing expectations. even the most ardent democrat would admit that president obama isn't the best debater. but according to beth myers . . . >> jennifer: and then president obama's top political advisor is just as glowing about mitt romney . . . they are so funny, my opponent he is abe lincoln and daniel webster all rolled into one. isn't that kind of weird hearing the campaign say such nice things about their opponents? believe me it's not going to last and it's all part of managing expectations before the debate. for more i'm joined by one of the country's foremost experts on the subject. samuel popkin who is a professor of political science at the university of san diego. he has worked on campaigns going back to the 1970s, and he is also the author of "the candidate." welcome back inside "the war room," profez or. >> it's a pleasure to be back with you gove

billion he would hold unemployment below 8%. it has been 43 straight months above 8%. >> jennifer: of course the unemployment rate hasn't stayed high all on its own, because this marks the one-year anniversary of the president sending his jobs bill and getting zilch. but for alls of the who say president obama still isn't doing enough, check this out. in the 37 months following the recession, about 3.5 million private-sector jobs have been created. but in the 37 months after any 2001 recession, 1.1 million private sector jobs were created. the bush administration created far fewer jobs than the obama administration. but the devastating layoffs is making this recovery even slower than it needs to be because in june jail economies, peter schott and ben polok suggested that the national unemployment rate would be a full point lower if the government sector rebounded as it has in previous sectors. joining me now is laura tyson. she is a member of president obama's council on jobs and competitiveness. and we're also joined by larry cohen, president of the com
